It’s not every day you see a donkey break into a smile. But when poor Mike got stuck in the mud and was nearly drowning in floodwaters before being rescued, he just couldn’t help it.
The call for help came in the form of a desperate facebook post by Ireland’s Animal Heaven Animal Rescue (AHAR) on Sunday.
“Code red. Today’s emergency. Please help me. There is a donkey stranded in deep flooding in Kilorglin. I need a boat and men to help.”
Residents of the area were quick to offer their help to rescue Mike. The rescuers managed to get hold of a small boat, and volunteers came down to help the stranded donkey.
This is the adorable moment Mike lets everyone know he’s happy to be back on dry land after he was pulled from the floodwaters.
